Indie European studio Numantian Games announced that the next development stage of their ambitious Single-player RPG, Lords of Xulima, is now up on Kickstarter. Spotted by our reader ‘Johnny Bravo’, Lords of Xulima is a 2D isometric, turn-based Role-Playing Game with the depth and challenge of old-school classics and a modern, intuitive interface.
Lords of Xulima aims to combine much of what made the genre so timeless; a cross between the non-linear, strategic PC classics and the challenging, story-driven Japanese RPGs. Add mature fantasy lore and original combat/gameplay concepts to the mix, then blend it all together into a modern interface and you’ll have Lords of Xulima.
Lords of Xulima director, Jesus Arribas, said:
“The game was originally inspired by over a decade of fascination for Role-Playing Games. We want to capture what made those RPG classics so memorable, while offering something new at the same time.”
A custom-made engine supports the isometric, detailed 2D backgrounds and 3D animations; a welcome modern touch to the familiar exploration and turn-based combat views. Craftsmanship and care are also invested in making the lore, weather effects and soundtrack contribute to the immersion as much as possible.
On the interface side, navigating through your skills, equipment choices and other menus will be as simple and concise as possible, due to balanced item and class ability usage playing an essential role in the player’s success.
Lords of Xulima is one large chapter of a grand, envisioned saga . It will be available in English and Spanish for PC, MAC & Linux.
